Ryan Reynolds has just confirmed that he will be reuniting with the Free Guy director for the third Deadpool movie. Take a look at his awesome post below.

"The third film in my Shawn Levy trilogy will be a tad more stabby," Reynolds wrote. The artwork features Guy from Free Guy and Adam Reed in The Adam Project with Deadpool himself.

We're loving how the "Shawn Levy trilogy" is coming together and how it will be rounded out by Deadpool 3. After all, it is clear that the filmmaker and Ryan Reynolds work well together. Needless to say, Levy's involvement makes us look forward to the sequel even more.

Deadpool 3 is currently being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who are also Ryan Reynolds' frequent collaborators. For now, only Ryan Reynolds is confirmed to appear in the sequel. However, fans are hoping that the other cast members, which could include Josh Brolin and Zazi Beetz, will be announced soon.

The second Deadpool film was directed by David Leitch and also brought back Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, and T.J. Miller. In the sequel, Wade Wilson encounters Josh Brolin's Cable who has travelled through time to eliminate a young mutant who will kill Cable's family in the future.
